Traditional fossil fuel exporting countries are seeking to leverage the change in demand patterns that are being brought about by the energy transition and as a momentum to decarbonise their economies. While considering this future economy, green hydrogen and its derivatives have been identified to be fuels of the future towards securing economic stability for fossil fuel exporting countries and pathways to their net-zero targets.
To raise a platform for African women to contribute to this global conversation the German Nigerian Hydrogen Office with the partnership between Women in Green Hydrogen and the African Energy Chamber cordially invites you to the “Women for the Energy Transition” event.
Women make up about 50% of the global population. Ahead of the current state of energy transition, women are presented with an unique opportunity to be at the forefront of the decision-making for developing low carbon energy sources like green hydrogen towards the net zero emissions targets while closing the gap of women in roles across the energy sector across Africa.

The German-Nigerian Hydrogen Office is part of the Global Hydrogen Diplomacy programme (H2 Diplo) funded by the German Foreign Office and implemented by the GIZ. The objective of the Hydrogen Office is to partner with Nigeria to assess and outline its prospects and potentials for green hydrogen with a mandate to strengthen the country towards leveraging these potentials for a sustainable transformation of its industry and economy.
